Is It Just Me?

Just a short compilation of the silly things we dog owners do for our fur babies.

Recognise any of them? or maybe you have a few yourself? I hope so, or maybe it’s just me?

Have you ever caught your dog’s eye and licked your tongue out to see if they do it back? It’s a great game, you can also teach them to blink and twitch their noses, absolutely no use whatsoever but such fun. Not to be done in public for obvious reasons!

Do you say ‘bless you’ when your dog sneezes?

Have you ever sat on the floor because the dog looks comfy on the sofa?

How about cooking the dog some lovely chicken, when you have beans on toast for supper?

Do you have really silly nicknames like BooBooBear or Snugglebum? and talk to the dog as if they are a baby? ……’Who’s the best doggy in the World?’ and ‘ohhh you are sooo clever’

I have actually apologised to my dog because it is raining!

When it’s really hot would you put the fan on the dogs whilst you swelter in the heat?

I leave something interesting on the tv when I go out, usually Animal Planet so they don’t get bored. I will also tell them exactly where I am going, how long I will be and I always tell them which one is in charge whilst I’m not there.

I buy a mint shower gel because I know my dog likes to lick it off my feet after I’ve showered.

I sing ‘How much is that doggy in the window?’  to them although I am tone-deaf.

Every pocket of every coat, cardigan, hoodie is full of small plastic bags, even though the dog is at home!

Is it just me?

  1. What about telling your dog she’s “the most beautiful girl” in every country you can possibly think of while she stares back, listening intently with those big brown eyes.

    She’s the most beautiful in Jamaica, Sri Lanka, Australia, the United Arab Emirates… you get the idea!!

    Also, my 5 year old dog thinks that she gets a treat when I go to the toilet (a throwback from puppy training).

    I learnt from the best…

  2. OMG it’s not just you!!! LOL I loved this post, because it sounds exactly like me. Everything you mentioned I do except for the mint gel, the “how much is the dog” and the sitting in the floor thing!

    Such a great post, thanks for sharing your craziness because I’m crazy tooooo! Wait, so maybe we aren’t really crazy, just super sweet and loving dog owners, am I right?!

      1. Thank you for visiting! Indeed, we do all need to stick together! I feel like I can totally justify all that I do for Arko. And if we can justify it, then it’s all good!! Hehehe! ❤️🐾❤️🐾-Sunny

  3. Not just you! I always converse with my dogs! Aero has a big vocabulary and tilts his head with certain words! I always tell them “I’ll be back, see you later” and that is their cue that I’m leaving and may be gone for a few hours. I leave them outside with access to the garage because I don’t trust 6-month old Brodie in the house just yet. 🙂

  4. Not just you. One bit. From singing, to talking, to telling them whether I will be back “soon” or “later”. I even sit on the floor. The kitties too. Worse, Callie, the dog, has her own online twitter personality, many friends and ridiculous conversations with them. 😂 😂 😂

  5. I have done a few of those myself. Including getting a poo bag out of my pocket instead of a tissue, when I sneezed!
    Thanks for following my blog, which is much appreciated.
    Best wishes, Pete. (And Ollie!)

  6. Haha what fun! I’m not a dog owner, but I do have two granddogs that I sometimes ‘dogsit’, so I can relate. They are King Charles Cavaliers and are well behaved and adorable.

  7. I am also tone deaf, and I always appreciated that my dog would listen to me sing and actually act like she enjoyed it. Yes, i’ve done many of these things, and many more.

  8. I’ve just stumbled across your blog and it made my day! Any doggy hooman that doesn’t do each of the things you described is clearly crazy 😉 One of my dogs is elderly now and only has one eye. He goes crazy if someone winks at him – running around yapping at the ceiling as if to say ‘stop showing off, you two-eyed freak!’. Haha

  9. No it’s not just you. I do all those plus many more. I always say goodnight to her and sweet dreams. Having a dog in your life is the best, looking into her eyes shows me true love.
